- July 15, 2019 By Oliver Young -
In the first half of this year, 1,150,559 jackpots were hit on the award-winning developer’s progressive jackpot network. Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has paid out over €89 million in the first half of 2019 alone, proving that it remains the most rewarding network in the entire history.
The Staggering Wins
It is no secret that Microgaming’s mega-popular slot Mega Millions is known in the industry as the ‘Millionaire Maker’ slot. And it is no wonder that the slot has delivered such mind-blowing sums throughout the years and earned Microgaming Guinness World Records® titles. The first one ever was in 2005, but the so far not broken record was last year’s massive €18,915,872 win that earned Microgaming the title ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’. A lucky Grand Mondial Casino player hit the jackpot on the 28th of September, and the news soon spread across the internet. To date, this staggering win remains the largest win ever recorded on the developer’s network.
But, as evident, the progressive jackpot network doesn’t stop surprising players with magnificent wins. This year has started out great, with the network delivering over €89 million from January to June, across 1,150,559 jackpots. 380 players took over €10,000, while eight were made millionaires, taking home 7 or even 8-figure jackpot prizes, pocketing a total of €43 million.
The third-largest win in Microgaming’s history and the first one this year was on the last day of January, on the 31st, when a player hit €13,328,028 playing Mega Moolah, the acclaimed wild animals-themed progressive jackpot slot. The next thrilling wins came at the beginning of March. The first €11,546,388 was hit on the 5th of March and this was the fourth-largest jackpot win in Microgaming’s history. The very next day, on the 6th of March, another player landed a jackpot win of €2,201,120! Therefore, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot delivered over €13 million in two consecutive days!
At the beginning of May, a fortunate player took home €5,430,849 and 20 days later, on the 23rd of May, another one scooped €5,673,937. In a three-week period, Microgaming’s network paid out over €11 million! But the network did not stop delivering staggering wins here. On the 17th of June, less than a month later, the €3,304,204 win was hit by a player, marking the last jackpot prize collected for the first half of the year. Until the 30th of June, a total of 74 millionaires were made thanks to Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network.
Microgaming’s CEO John Coleman was the first to comment on the massive €89 million total in prizes delivered by the progressive jackpot network. He proudly stated that this year showed a potential of becoming an incredible year for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, with total lifetime rewards slowly approaching a mark of €1.1 billion!
Coleman congratulated the players who have so far won staggering sums, adding that everyone at Microgaming was looking forward to the progressive jackpot network delivering more life-changing sums in the second half of the year. He finished his statement reminding that the network remained the largest one in the industry, linked to the epic Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot.
